Cashing in on Pre-foreclosures and Short Sales shows investors exactly how to take advantage of what many are calling the best upcoming investment real estate market we have experienced in decades! Chip distinguishes the difference between good deals and bad deals, reveals just how easy it is to find, evaluate, and obtain foreclosure properties, tells how to negotiate a profitable transaction, and unveils the power of using short sales and other strategies to create a win-win situation for the investor, the seller, and the bank. Even first-time buyers looking to score a bargain on purchasing their own home will be armed with all the tools they need to confidently evaluate and pursue a profitable deal - and save thousands in the process. Cashing In on Pre-foreclosures and Short Sales incorporates quotes and advice from top industry professionals, as well as a healthy appendix packed with state and national foreclosure guidelines, including valuable contacts and websites, sample forms, checklists, and all the necessary tools you need to find, evaluate, secure and profit from foreclosure properties.
